London 2017 Christmas Lights and Store Windows

It’s my annual review of the London Christmas store windows and Christmas lights in a double length, double decker filled vlog! I choose my three favorite store windows and wind up in front of a brass band at Piccadilly Circus, having covered Harrods, Selfridges, John Lewis and more.

Just as iconic as travelling down the River Nile by boat, being on a red London double-decker bus going down Oxford Street.

Fortnum & Mason has luxurious side windows full of their wares. Hear their clock and watch the William Fortnum and Hugh Mason figures in motion in my YouTube video.

These 2017 Selfridges Christmas windows remind me of an old film set in wartime Britain like “Bedknobs and Broomsticks”. Walking past these windows is like watching a really British Christmas parade march past.

Take a look at the red London bus dashing past Knightsbridge underground station, which could almost be an icing covered Christmas cake, on its way to Oxford Street.
